US Army National Guard
Well as a Chief for a 119A3 crew, we do anything from usual admin laid back months to high speed AASLT raid training. Mostly you just prep for the upcoming AT. So if your on a reset year its more basic emplacements and crew drills for 6 months or so and the rest usually ends up being admin/ranges/ apft etc. as a new guy, you’ll most likely be given a lower job until you show that you know something. Pay attention, learn the system and do what you can outside of drill to better yourself. Even if that means taking the TM home and reading up on the system. And also.... PT outside of drill. Guards hard because there is alot outside that can keep you from it. Somethings better then nothing.
All depends if its a field drill or not.. during Field drills your advance party will show up the day before prep the equipment and head out to the guns and get them prepped. the next day everyone else shows up gets their gear/weapons and loads on the buses and meets advon out in the field. on homestation drills your going to run APFT and conduct mandatory training's (SHARP, EO, Suicide prevention and resilience).
